Cycling for a Cause

Updated: Monday, June 23 2014, 04:12 PM CDT

JD Hartwig and Brennon Mobley are not experienced cyclists, but say their mission is all  about the children.
    
That's why the money they raise will go to build a school in Honduras.

The duo -- which began as a trio -- pushed off from Oregon on May 15.   

They'll travel through the midwest until they reach Washington D.C.
    
The team is working with "147 Million Orphans" -- an organization focused on providing the critical needs of orphaned children worldwide.
    
After taking a trip to Honduras, both riders say they have a responsibility to do something greater.

"We're all given opportunities to bless other people and it's up to us to take advantage of those. So, being a summer in between two semesters, we're really fortunate to take advantage of this opportunity."

"So things like sore legs, or tired backs, or nights without a lot of sleep really don't seem to matter from that kind of perspective."

$50,000 is what they say it will cost to build a school in Honduras. To date, they've collected more than $36,000.

Since May 15, they've cycled more than 2,000 miles. Which as of today, leaves them with about 1,200 more to go.
